Lately I get a series of clacking sounds when I first start my 3.6 2013 Avenger RT and turn on the heater. It sounds like a somebody cycling.
Anyone know what it might be? It's coming from under the dashboard near the center.It usually cycles between 2 and 5 times.
Any long term effects of simply igniting it?
Thanks
Elton

Probably one of the blend door actuators. Not an expensive part and fix if you do it yourself.

Thanks. Checked the price on the blend door actuator and it's only about$25. I've got an extended warranty with a $50 deductible so I'm going to go that route first to see if it's covered. If it is I'm sure my back will thank me for it.😁

Sounds good, yes your back will definitely be relieved if you don't have to climb under there:)

Well the blend door actuator is not listed as covered.I can't find any r+r instructions in my Chilton.Do you know of any You Tube vids?
Also I'm guessing there's no dire effects to simply ignoring it( as opposed to "igniting"it as I misposted in my first message)

Well if the noise gets too irritating enough you might want to 'ignite' it:) I probably have some instructions but there are 3 of them, let me know which one is noisy. There are also videos(probably links on the forum if you search). No there are no dire effects if you ignore it.
